Below: Horse Egrets... I mean, Cattle Egrets... in Worcester Co., Maryland (8/6/2006). This species has naturally extended its range from Africa to every continent but Antarctica. It specializes in feeding on insects kicked up by grazing mammals. It seems horses and cattle work just as well as zebras and rhinos.
